Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 8/15/2013: Sagittarius on My Mind: The Ballad of Bette & Larry

A rollicking good time can be had with today’s Moon in rowdy Sagittarius, even if a few feet land in a mouth or two. Sag does need to let the whole world know its opinion; thus there may be much banter at the water cooler about…well, anything, especially anything righteous.

The morning begins with a rose-colored connection between Moon and nebulous Neptune at 4:24AM ET, so do note your dreams upon waking. Perhaps you have journeyed to far-out places? Throughout the rest of the day, Moon will touch base with yesterday’s trine between mental Mercury and rocket scientist Uranus, suggesting some of the stances taken will come across as extremely self-contained, perhaps even a tad above the law — even if they are pure genius. Take note of that aspect, if you are in the legal profession.

Ship it today — or at least before 1:32PM ET tomorrow, when the Moon goes void and skips out of town early. Sounds like a casual Friday to me. Enjoy.

Meanwhile, in the news….it figures that Larry Summers, a controversial candidate for Chairman of the Federal Reserve, would be a Sagittarius. This gentleman has quite the reputation for a rough-around-the-edges style, especially when it comes to making statements about women. Bette Midler is all over Mr. Summers on Twitter — as noted in the first link in this paragraph (which takes you to NYT op-ed by Maureen Dowd). What’s in his horoscope that could reflect that behavior pattern, hmm?

How about a scathing T-square (a very tense pattern that looks like a T-square) among macho Mars opposing ruthless Pluto, with mental Mercury in (often) brutal Scorpio sandwiched in the middle. Yeah, this pattern could definitely pick a fight — and stubbornly hold its ground. Then, there’s a potentially chilly, disciplined hook-up between stern Saturn and Venus, both quite frankly challenged mightily in Scorpio, with nobody to connect with but each other. A heavy, controlling, corporate approach when it comes to administering (Saturn) financial concerns (Venus)? Really, I am not seeing any fluffy bunny rabbits in this picture. And Venus, which refers to social expression, women and aesthetics (in addition to money), is also retrograde, suggesting an emotional disconnect in relationships and/or a double agenda. He just doesn’t get it. Whose side is he on? How could he say that about women, anyway?

Well — there is one sort of fluffy bunny rabbit, in the shape of the inexplicable magnetism suggested by a seductive connection between Mars in unconventional Aquarius (the rebel with a cause) and nebulous Neptune. Oh…just hang a rose-colored fog over the whole package, why don’t you? We don’t have a birth time for Mr. Summers — born Nov 30 1953 in New Haven, CT — so we do not know if he has Moon in Capricorn or Aquarius. I’ll hazard a guess and say Aquarius — suggesting a need to be socially significant, driven by a current challenge from ambitious Saturn.

…and hey, guess what? Bette Midler is a Sagittarius, too — with Moon in Scorpio and a fearless Aries Ascendant. Born on December 1, 1945 — here’s her horoscope. That Scorpio Moon needs to be seen as mighty deep, using knowledge for the sake of power and control. Fascinating….
